Rotary Club of Berrima District welcomed 206 guests to their annual fundraiser the ‘Hits of the Blitz Cabaret’ evening last month.
Guests enjoyed entertainment from a variety of the stars of yesteryear and the evening was MC’d by ‘Sir Winston Churchill’.
Club president Jan Edwards said the evening was a fantastic fundraising success.
The money raised will go towards the Local Youth Mental Health Outreach Program for the Highlands and Rotary’s Medical Aid to Oceania project.
“We would like to thank all the entertainers including The Rotary Choir who sang Dambusters March, under the guidance of their music conductor, Mike Butcher, and the Southern Highlands Concert Band, who played with great gusto all evening,” Ms Edwards said.
“Guests were also blown away by the Andrews Sisters rendition of Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. For a bit of light entertainment, THSPA’s dancers performed the Candyman.
“The Rotary Club of Berrima District would like to thank the amazing support from the community of the Southern Highlands, without which the fantastic event would not be possible,” Ms Edwards said.
“The club raised a significant amount of money towards its charitable projects including supporting Local Youth Mental Health Outreach Program for the Highlands.”
The Rotary Club of Berrima District is now planning next year’s event and currently involved in partnership with BDCU Children’s Foundation on the Bowral Long Lunch raising further funds towards the Local Youth Mental Health Outreach Program for the Highlands.
